Christie to urban schools: let them teach competition

At a reception honoring the 100th anniversary of the NAACP, Chris Christie told the banquet hall of 150 black leaders and guests that he is the candidate in the race best equipped to combat crime and improve public education. "Children are not getting the education they deserve," he says. "I will guarantee you change will come to urban education. Competition will come to urban education."

He's right. Urban schools will change for the worse when they have to compete with wealthier suburban schools for whatever funds are left after Christie cuts taxes and increases rebates to his rich, conservative voter base.
